 .........  and now that Catalina has rendered the super effective LR / Instagram plugin .... inoperable.

 

Hi guys,

I've always used the plugin. Which options do I have at this point?

 

Thanks a lot,

I change the User Agent in Safari and upload from there. Its a PITA having to sync photos to my iPad or iPhone just to upload.

The best option is to contact the maker of the plug-in.

 

One of the changes in Catalina was that there are higher standards for the security of plug-in code. Some plug-ins may be disabled by Catalina if they're not sufficiently notarized or security-hardened.

Also, there are no methods of uploading to Instagram from the desktop that are officially approved by Instagram, so it's always possible that Instagram closed the loophole that let the plug-in get away with it.

 

Either way, the problem probably needs to be fixed by the plug-in author.

Try a Mac app called Flume. I don't know if it'll work under Catalina, but currently I just export from LR and have Flume set as the post processing step in the export dialog.

On iPhone, you share to Instagram from Lightroom Mobile. Have you been using this?

It should be quick and easy if you create a Lightroom collection for Instagram, and then enable syncing of that collection to Lightroom photos in the cloud. When you open Lightroom on your iPhone, it will update that same collection with your latest Instagram photos. Then all you have to do is use the standard iOS Share sheet to send the photo from Lightroom directly to the Instagram app, as shown in the following animation:

(Sorry for the rough quality, I crunched down the file size so the animation would load quickly.)

Thanks Lumigraphics.

a) Can you then upload directly from LR, or is there an intermediate step?

b) How do you re-size the image to its original 2x3 aspect ratio, and at what point? If I remember correctly - from centuries ago, there's a little box somewhere to click for that purpose?

It's really simple to do; thanks so much. I hope the algorithm doesn't penalize us for publishing from not-a-phone.

And .... I need to always remember to click on the bottom left of the image to restore the original 2x3 aspect ratio. 

 

This is the absolute simplest method out there that I've seen. Thanks again.
